    Can't help on the problem unfortunately, but was wondering if the block was shimmed as you're making a good lump of extra power? Also what year of...

    Mr Oblark,

    First things first, I'm going to call you a stallion ! The work you did with the Clio Brembo install - well done bud!

    I want to pick your brains a little and use his setup for my V70R! May I if possible have a diagram of the bracket you made to house them ?? And I assume you still have those bad boys installed ??

    My email - looking forward to your reply Sir
